I think the Man In Black's name is Esau, who is the brother of Jacob in the Bible. One's evil, the other is Good.

The<Man in Black I believe is a "Satan" or perhaps the one & only. There are very strong biblical themes in this show. He said the biggest difference between him & John was that John wanted to stay on the island & he "wants to go home." Is the island the location of Eden, where all creation began?!!!
